“Therapy is Expensive, Should I Really Budget for This”:
Trust me, we get it. We have paid for our own therapists for several years and use to wonder the same thing. As humans who are huge proponents of prioritizing mental health, happiness, sanity, and overall emotional well-being, the short answer is, absolutely.
You are on our page for a reason. There is something you’re struggling with; whether it be body-image related thoughts taking over your day, calorie counting eating you alive (no pun intended), familial stress that feels like it’s becoming unbareable, or angst that has become your new normal, something has you wondering if talking to a licensed professional would be helpful. As some of those licensed professionals, we can only share our own experience when answering this question: we help our clients work through their struggles, tease through their sometimes dysfunctional thought patterns, and find the path to a brighter tomorrow on a weekly basis. The shift that takes place as a result of better understanding your behaviors, motives, relationships, and beliefs, is profound. Giving yourself the gift of therapy, of speaking with an unbiased individual that can help you better understand all of these things and more, in our humble opinion, is well worth-it. Take a moment to think about if you are just going through the motions of life, or if you are truly living throughout each of those moments. If you feel like you’re not present in your daily life, therapy might be [at least part of] the answer!
WE ARE IN-NETWORK WITH BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF MICHIGAN & BLUE CARE NETWORK:
Please check your current policy to see if mental health services are covered and to better understand your deductible and out-of-pocket requirements, including co-pays and other potential fees you may be responsible for. Aside from potential co-pays, if you have a comprehensive policy and have met your deductible, your session will be covered in full. If you have Blue Cross Blue Shield through a different state: the reimbursement process is slightly different. I won’t bill directly, but we are happy to provide a Superbill, see below, for you to send in for reimbursement.
FOR THOSE WITH OTHER INSURANCE PROVIDERS*:
We are more than happy to provide clients with a Superbill, a detailed invoice, of our sessions, in hopes that your insurance company will reimburse you for a percentage of our session fee. This percentage varies depending on your specific policy and your insurance company’s requirements for out-of-network providers. We have had several clients receive reimbursement ranging from 30-80% of the session rate.
*: WE CANNOT GUARANTEE REIMBURSEMENT AS AN OUT-OF-NETWORK PROVIDER.
IF YOU THINK WE COULD BE THE PERFECT FIT FOR ONE ANOTHER, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OR BLUE CARE NETWORK, OR THE SESSION FEES ABOVE SIMPLY DON’T FIT INTO YOUR BUDGET: We never want cost to be what prevents someone from seeking our support. Please don’t hesitate to inquire about reduced-rate session availability.
